What an amazing time to be learning about Computer Studies and Information Technology (CSIT). Things that were fiction such as the Star Trek Communicator and the Dick Tracy wrist watch are now cell phones and smart watches in our daily lives. Rick is excited to be a part of the MiraCosta College CSIT Dept. In his humble opinion, he thinks that we are at the tip of the iceberg discovering what Information Technology grounded in the Internet will be. Technologies such as cloud computing, bid data, and cyber security are three huge growth areas in CSIT. In fact, having knowledge of CSIT is almost like having super hero powers.
Rick thinks one of the best things about being a CSIT instructor is the knowledge transfer from him to his students as well as from his students to him. Everyday in the classroom and in online instruction he learns something new.
